Orphaned Computer and Game Systems

OC&GS is an online newsletter, the title of which is self-explanatory. Classic computers and video games are covered in many different ways throughout each issue. We try appealing to people who like to read, and who might appreciate unique perspectives on old games, rather than those seeking flash and fireworks. Remember: There's always more going on in your brain than your monitor.

The original, hard-copy newsletter was started by Adam Trionfo in late 1994. It was a bold move at the time; he wasn't sure if there were enough old-game enthusiasts to comprise a large readership. Also, he used an Amiga 1200 with Pagestream 2.2, a wonderful page-formatting application that unfortunately ran very slow on such a skeletal Amiga 1200 (68020/AGA). It took him awhile just to make a minor grammatical change, for instance, because he had to watch the page being re-drawn. Once the thing was finished, he sent it out to a few people whose interest he thought might be aroused, and made further copies available at a few local stores (in Albuquerque, NM). To his surprise, he got a lot of feedback, and dozens of readers sent in the requested buck per upcoming issue.
